Teaching about Energy. Vol. 1. Introduction to the Energy 80 Program.
Enterprise for Education, Santa Monica, CA.
This document is the first of a three-volume teacher resource book for use with the Energy 80 energy education program. The program is designed to enhance students' understanding of energy, either through supplements to traditional courses, such as mathematics, science, social studies, or homemaking, or by developing a mini-course or interdisciplinary course in energy. Although written for middle/junior high school students, many of the activities are useful for high school and upper elementary grades. This volume provides information on creating an energy program and characteristics and goals of the Energy 80 program. Additional information provided includes suggestions for involving parents in the program, managing student investigations, reproducing black-line masters, and how energy education develops such basic skills as reading, writing, graphing, and various mathematical skills. An index and glossary to volumes 2 and 3 of this resource book and to "Energy 83" (the student booklet) is included. (JN)
